GEOCAST: taking podcasts and vidcasts into the classroom

I noticed a new Geography feed on iTunes called Higher Geography the other day, but I couldn’t get it to download so I forgot about.  Today, the files I tried to connect to earlier were available and I have to say I am impressed.  The content does not rival Terra which I posted about last week, but it is just ramping and has some solid geography information.  They seem to have 3 levels planned, the Higher Geography, that is partially available now, and the standard and intermediate levels, that currently have holding pages in place.  Within the Higher Geography section they have three sections that are tied primarily to physical geography and the environment.

GEOCAST uses both audio and video to deliver their short topical presentations.  Great to see another Geography podcast out there!
